To remove algae from wood, 1 cup of Oxy-bleach to 2 pints of water, will help the dark stains too, to a degree. Always wear protective gloves and safety goggles/glasses when using any type of bleach,beware chemicals of this nature can harm animals, even light winds could blow the liquid into eyes. Hydrogen peroxide solution will lighten the wood.

hope this helps
